. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver
the last few years. we know what economic impacts this law is already having as it it -- its still gnashient implement -- nascient implementation has moved forward. we need to make ourselves accountable to the american people for this law and what we now know is in this law. i therefore respectfully urge each and every one of my colleagues to support this amendment. thank you, madam president. i yield back my time. ms. mikulski: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. ms. mikulski: madam president, i rise to speak on the cruz amendment. as i said, i'm glad senator lee had his chance. as i said, the cruz amendment would prevent the department of health and human services from implementing funding for the discretionary spending aspects of the affordable care act. as the presiding officer knows of the affordable care act so well and played a major part in it when she was a member of the house of representatives, you know that this would be -- have disastrous consequences. its consequence would essentially defund the affordable care act. they call it obamacar
duck for two months over the summer was that under the campaign finance laws, he couldn't use money that he'd already raised until after he received the nomination for president in august. i believe that our primary process is way too long. i think our calendar needs to be looked at. i think our debate calendar needs to be shrunk. i think we had way too many debates with candidates slicing and dicing each other, and i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'm calling for a convention in june or july. we're going to set up a commission that's going to make that decision. i'm going to be a part of that. i'm going to chair that commission. ut no more august conventions. scommoip we're taking republican thoughts on those changes that reince priebus was talking about. give us a call. the phone numbers, we'll put up for you. we're doing our lines regionally for republicans just in this first segment of the "washington journal" tosmede a few other stories that are out there -- obama to pick tom perez for labor. that's the headline of the politico story this morning. pre
the affordable care act but keeps the law's budget savings and uses it to balance their budget. they say in the budget they are going to repeal the affordable care act. how are they going to repeal it? it's passed the congress and it's the law of this country. it was upheld by the supreme court. we had an election, where this was a central point of debate. and guess what, president obama won the election and he ran on the affordable care act. so they say they are going to repeal it, they don't have the votes to repeal it. and even if they did, he would veto it. no way they could repeal it. it's a hoax. it's a hoax. and then they claim to protect medicare while ending medicare as we know it for future seniors and our children and our grandchildren. and the biggest hoax, i want you to comment on this, and sit there and say they are going to repeal the affordable care act and take the savings from the affordable care act, the $718 billion that was put there from the providers and use that to balance their budget. the numbers do not add up. ms. frankel: let me ask you this. does the repeal o
requiring as a matter of law that north carolina coastal policy be based on historic rates of sea level rise rather than on what north carolina scientists actually preaddict. this means that even though north carolina scientists predict 39 inches of sea level rise within the century, north carolina by its own law is only allowed to prepare for eight. king canute would be so proud. further down, the south carolina department of natural resources wrote a report more than a year ago on the risks climate change poses to the palmetto state, but it was never released to the public. the state newspaper managed to obtain a copy of that study. the report calls for south carolina to prepare for increases in wildlife disease, loss of prime hunting habitat and the invasion of nonnative species, but to republicans, these are more problems which shall not be named. in south dakota, the republican legislature in 2010 even passed a nonbinding resolution calling for teaching in public schools that relies on a number of common and thoroughly debunked climate denier claims. in short, bringing climate denier pr

[applause] and on the life question, it's really pretty simple. i went through the toughest election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing.

and we've tried to tackle both of those in our acquisition reform bill which is now law and which is taking some time to take hold. >> want to take advantage of my time for a minute and jump around a bit. we're talking about afghanistan but how do you think history is going to judge the obama administration's decision not to intervene in any significant military fashion in syria? 70,000 dead as you know and several million refugees. >> i think it's way too early how to predict how history is going to judge whether our policy is right. it's not too early to know how history will judge assad. that's easy. but in terms of whether or not we have proceeded in a more deliberate way than some would want us to, and probably a little more than i would want us to if you want to get into that, nonetheless the goal here is to make sure that what happens after assad is, is stable, is diverse, is not chaotic. that the right people are the ones that take over when assad goes. and that's, that's a matter of putting in place, if possible, a kind of an interim political coalition, which will have b
? >> you know, my dream was probably always to go to law school. that would be a dream. but i just take it as it comes. see how it goes. >> do you have any regrets. do you worry about the future? >> no. once i made the decision and you know, i feel good about it and feel good about the way it turned out, so no, i don't have any regrets. it turned out exactly the way i would have hoped it would. i will move forward and play it by ear and take it as it comes. >> again, to reiterate, why did you do this? why? why would you put yourself out there like this? >> you know, like the people need to hear what someone really believes. they needed to hear what he really thinks. he was just saying the absolute opposite in public. and i just felt like that, you know, just watch him on tv and that just wasn't what he was saying in public. so it just -- everybody needed to hear that. >> so you knew you had a unique seat in history as to what had been said. >> yeah, i thought it could be a game-changer. i thought maybe he would leave the campaign at that point. >> okay, scott prouty, thanks for your tim
on repealing the president's health care law which is law of the land, being enacted in over 25 states. is he a serious political figure, a serious policy figure in republican circles? >> he is a serious political figure and a serious policy figure in the republican party, but the governor's criticism about the budget is spot on. its formulations are not based in reality. obama care has been validated by the court, it was validated in the last election, it is the law of the land. i think that it is important for republicans to communicate clearly to the country about the costs and future of the interest payments on out of control spending, that's an absolute threat to our future prosperity. we're going to have to deal with that as a country. when you put forward the plans and proposals, particularly when you're the minority party, particularly when you're out of power, it ought to be a document that's grounded in reality, in truth telling to the american people. >> reality and truth telling, endangered species in some circles. steve schmidt and howard dean, thank you both for joining me. >> y
. there are letters monroe wrote to his daughters, to his two sons and laws, to his political advisers, that talk about family matters. he wrote letters home talking about meeting mrs. monroe, other women in washington recorded in their diaries. there is a fair amount about her. we do not have really anything from her point of view, which is merit -- very maddening. >> what we know from what we have about her relationship with her husband? >> they were devoted. they were apart for a couple of months here and there. throughout their 44-year marriage. usually, they were together. there is a wonderful letter. samuel from new york road his wife. he had been at a dinner at the white house when jefferson was president and it was right before monroe left to go to france to negotiate what became of the louisiana purchase. fineote, monroe has a feeling. he cannot stand to be from his wife, so he is taking her with him. that was pretty much their attitude. he was devoted to family, as well. that is really what they wanted to do. if they had their chores of how they would spend their time, it would be with
. but that we have to have some laws that restrict guns a little bit. i don't think it means we don't want to protect women or to have women protect themselves. i just don't think you need an assault weapon to protect yourself. >> bill: more ran is a little bit more than the assault weapons. it walls a valid question and it was posed in a provocative way aagree with you. there is no comparison toward choosing what to do in a pregnancy and choosing what to do you know, in protecting yourself. that's apples to oranges. >> yeah. >> bill: yeah. however, women will be put at a deficit in some places example, chicago would ban all handguns. if you are a woman in chicago and you want protection, particularly if you live in a bad neighborhood and you can't have a handgun, your deficit is much higher than a man would be. and so i think that's what the woman was getting at. you know, that's her opinion. but i'm a woman and i don't have a gun i feel safe. >> bill: you live in a swanky neighborhood. if you live in the south side of chicago you couldn't feel safe. >> that's not true and i have lived in
for the business, and with a roomful of attorneys and law professor. i'm sure you're familiar with the duty of care and loyalty. it's a to read your manual and the responsibility related to being a good board member and the duty of loyalty. the duty to the company above your personal interest and that includes the conflict of interest for non-profit. there's an additional duty of obedience to the mission. and tamyra asked me to mention today my own concept of an additional duty of duty of imagination. ting fits here. which is what i think. so if the sneed business had a board and followed the duty of care and locality. they could follow their responsibility, they could have a good audit and follow every rule and regulation perfectly fine. there's little regulation related to ecosystems, in fact. and they could have no conflict of interest on the board. they can be doing their job perfectly fine. the question, the issue is here, the duty of imagination, which is where do we see this business in the future? where are we taking this organization? what is the greater potential in the future long-term v
maintains that marriage is between a man and a woman 17 years ago, he signed that into law. he now opposes the defense of marriage act and thinks that gays should be allowed to get married just as any other american should be allowed to get married. so there's a generational gap, if you will. and i think that politically speaking, a lot of republicans are beginning to say to themselves, you know what, since their stance opposing gay marriage is not necessarily popular with younger americans, they've got to see the handwriting on the wall, if you will. but it's significant, very significant with senator portman. he does this on the eve of the oral arguments that will be made before the u.s. supreme court on the defense of marriage act on gay marriage. that we expect a decision by the nine justices before the end of june. look, these justices, while they try to just look at the law, they're also impacted by public opinion, i think it's fair to say. so his decision to express the support for gay marriage i think is significant. >> and we're within two weeks of those oral arguments, too. wolf,
of the dorm rooms. the orange county bomb squad and fbi have been out here working with local law enforcement all morning long. campus officials say there's no threat to the campus community at this time but a spokesman describes this as a very sketchy situation. listen to what he says police found when they arrived at the dorm earlier this morning. >> a call came in about a fire alarm in tower one. on the way to respond to that, a 911 call in about an armed man in the tower. when police responded to the dorm room they found a victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. we interviewed people who had knowledge of the situation and during the search of the dorm room we found an assault weapon and emprovized explosive devices. >> reporter: a resident of the dorm found that handgun and assault rifle and we heard explosives were found in a bag. we also know the orange county medical examiner and the coroner just arrived on scene to remove that body. it is going to be quite some time before they allow students back into that tower one dorm. when they were evacuated very early this morning, they were
from marry, and how does portman reconcile his own beliefs with the state law? >> i suspect that he now opposes the state's law and you would have to ask him in order to get a definitive a answer, and i would say that he opposes his own state's law, because it prevents marriage between same sex couples, yeah. >> and he was considered to be a running mate for mitt romney, and he said he did reveal his son's sexuality in the vetting process, and beth myers who conducted the vetting process said it did not pose an issue. but wouldn't it have posed some discussion. >> it don't believe so, because back in 2004 when we had george bush and dick cheney running for re-election, george bush took his stance with regard to same-sex marriage, and dick cheney is in favor for same-sex marriage and has said so publicly for many times. but in the case of mitt romney, because there is always more suspicion about him among the social conservatives maybe something that would have played more of a role there than the 2004 campaign, but i highly doubt this had anything the do with why senator portman was not
into law. one bill bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected which is normally about six weeks. the only exception is life of the mother, no exception for rape or incest. another controversial bill bans abortion on the basis of gender or genetic defect. >> is it right to destroy life because of the perception that a person may not meet someone else's standards as being acceptable to live? >> i cannot think of anything more cruel than for the state to require that first pregnancy to be carried to term and watch my grandchild die on the delivery table. >> the aclu is call on the governor to veto that bill. >>> pope francis told reporters gathered at the vatican this morning he wants the catholic church to be poor. the new pope spoke to the media for the first time since his election wednesday and explained why he picked the named francis saying it reflects a concern for the poor. he says the name keeps the spirit of st. francis of assisi alive, calling him "a poor man, a simple man, as we would like a poor church for the poor." >>> politics now today is the last day of the cpac,
congress, think they can write any law, regulate behavior, and change any law. stuart: we talked about the situation, and, by the way, when the market opened this morning, the dow dropped 105 points, come back a lot, now down 36. maybe, charles, liz, maybe the market thinks that the cypress story is overblown, will not affect it, maybe not affect spain or italy artery. >> maybe not, you know, but certainly for people who have been really concerned with what's going on, with a government that buys 1.2 billion bullets, hires 16,000 new irs agents, a government that's spent a trillion more than they earn than brought in, it doesn't help. the people in this country who are afraid of losing their rights and liberty, it's scary. stuart: i want debt center stage, and it's not. >> it's not. it should be. it might be likely limited, but it shows there's nothing above political meddling. what used to be taboo is your deposits are safe from taxation. stuart: the time is up, butdagen, connell it's yours. connell: thank you, sir. dagen: if you bail out those depositors, why shouldn't they have to p
health care law can have on hiv/aids. the panel also looks at some of the challenges of implementing the law. the center for american progress hosted this hour and 20 minute event. >> good morning, everybody. my name is neera tanden and i'm the president of the center for american progress. thank you for joining us this morning for this important discussion of how health reform is addressing the needs of gay and transgender communities and people living with hiv. reforming america's health care system is a massive undertaking. one of the president's advisers on health reform, i know that as we gear up for health care reform it will touch the lives of every american. that effort means it will touch the lives of the lesbian, gay and transgender community as welcome as those people living with hiv. the united states currently has 9 million -- 19 people living with hiv. hiv epidemic continues to raise and marginalize. like the uss russell, this topic is diverse. gay and transgender people live in all corners of our country and they come from families of all varieties. regardless of the d
began a 241-mile march to the sea to protest the law in british rule india. specifically britain salt acts which enforced a heavy tax and banned indians from collecting or selling salt. gandhi and dozens of supporters set out for the coast where they planned to make their own salt from sea water. by the time they got there gandhi's followers numbered in the tens of thousands. his campaign of nonviolence civil disobedience auto would soon spread across the subcontinent. after 17 years britain finally granted india its independence. gandhi took a giant step towards freedom 83 years ago today. and now you know the news for this tuesday, march the 12th, 2013. or wednesday march the 13th here because it's past midnight but don't worry about it. when you get up tomorrow, it will be wednesday. unless -- i'm shepard smith. we will see you back here tomorrow or later today as we continue to watch for a new pope. our coverage begins at 4:30 in the morning eastern time. i dare you to get up with us. until then, good night. >> bill: the o'reilly factor is on. tonight. >> medicare and medicaid. >>
costumes, [cheers and applause] but in texas, copyright laws are much stricter than gun laws. [laughter] now, some have questioned how coplen feels testing out his pro-gun theory so soon after the unimaginable tragedy of newtown. >> makes me feel great. i get up every morning with a pep in my step, giving out guns. living the dream. it's not like we're giving out cigarettes or alcohol, we're giving out guns. i don't see what the big deal is. >> stephen: yeah, he's not giving out cigarettes or alcohol. once you have the gun, you can get those for free! [laughter] but sadly, this experiment does have one flaw. he's given people guns only after they pass a background check and complete a safety and tactical course. >> stephen: background check? safety course? that could take up a whole saturday. [laughter] besides, if he really wants to test the impact of guns on crime, it's gotta be a bigger study. first of all, you're gonna need a control group who are given placebo guns. [laughter] they look identical to real guns, but shoot sugar bullets, so they don't kill anyone. they just give you t
that you suggest, gregg. i mean, you know, it's the law of the land, the republicans ran on repeal in 2012 and didn't win. on the other hand, my own view is, republicans and conservatives should be talking about obamacare as much as they can. we are on the front end of what is going to be an implementation nightmare of an already unpopular law and the more republicans talk about the damage that this law is going to do, the more they're going to be able to point back and say, we had another option and i think, you know, as part of the speech, it would be great if dr. carson laid out some other possibilities for health care reform that we're different, alternatives to obamacare. >> gregg: some of the topics at the convention have been very controversial, including contraception, gay marriage, immigration. and said by the party that they're too conservative on the issues for populace consumption in electoral contests and maybe the last presidential election was proof of that. are conservatives hurting the republican party in elections? >> no, conservatives are helping republican party in elec

, laws can come and go. what they call manners stay. manners are the way people treat each other and how they regard each other and how they behave. this is very appealing to the new americans. one thing they are inventing, a whole bunch of laws they are not sure people would buy. they needed people to behave. the phrase they used was republican virtue. that meant people would put the interests of the country before themselves. how do you get people to do that? they looked to the women of the class to start enforcing national matters. these white women of the cities were very conscious of that. >> here are the phone lines. if you live in the eastern or central time zones, our number is -- please dial carefully. we will take calls and another 10 minutes. this is a facebook question. i will turn to you has a long time curator of first ladies. the early first ladies for excellence riders. in what conditions are early letters? we saw thousands of letters last week. but what about dolley madison? what did she preserved? did she have a sense of her legacy? >> i think she did. she is writing to
as clearly is the job that's destroyed when government first pulls that dollar out. we see those laws -- lost jobs as chronic unemployment and a stagnating economy. every $1 billion spent in washington means taking $9 from an average family. oother in direct taxes -- either in direct taxes or tax-driven price increases as businesses pass along their cost to consumers. that means that $1 trillion of new taxes that the senate has proposed means $9,000 per family. now we're told, don't worry, that's all paid by businesses. but businesses don't pay business taxes. they only collect them. they pass them on to us as consumers through higher prices, to us as employees through lower wages or to us as investors through lower earnings, usually on our 401-k's. $1 trillion of deficit as we ran up last year really means $9,000 of future taxes for every family , robbing our children of their futures. it's about time we started thinking in these numbers as families size to terms because ultimately these numbers have a very real impact on families who were struggling to balance their own budgets, to set thei
law in san diego environmental law. you have been at that commissioner in san diego, member of city council? right? >> right. >> in la joya. what is it like as a freshman member of congress? you have only been there since january. are you glad you ran for the office? are you enjoying it? >> it's a big opportunity. i love public service. i have been fortunate enough to do it. i love it to be able to do things because i believe government can be a positive agent for change and that there are important -- it's an important role for government in supporting american prosperity. people in san diego would say i could get things done. trying to bring that at toured to d.c. here it's a huge honor to be here. the history of the institution is so impressive, and there has been a lot of great things accomplished here right now it's in irons. we are a ship with no wind in our sails. a lot of us are new. out of the congress, 20% of us were selected for the first time. we sit around scratching our heads about why fly across the country. a couple ofiques
and there are similarities and the one similarity on this trading floor is look at the gm bankruptcy in the rule of law in the pecking order of financial liabilities, are there similarities? does it rhyme? there's definitely a little anxiety here and how it works is out anybody's guess. right now safety doesn't seem to be as rampant as one would expect. look at a two-day chart of ten and certainly we're down a handful of basis points, but if you open the chart up year to date you can see the pattern and it hasn't been violated that much and we're in a seven-week low yield and look at the backyard of cyprus and you see a different picture and these are ten-year booms and look at year to date and we're making new year to date low yield on the boom because the comp is it's under 140 close on december 31st. let's switch gears here. let's look at a november 1st start date to the euro. you can see that the euro right now is hovering at the lowest levels based on the close that we don't yet know about december 7th. pearl harbor day and it was comping back to november because it isn't on its lowest levels. if

the monumental changes to our economy over the past 10 years since the law was last authorized. there are many important reasons to do so, including cutting waste and improving he efishency, but the most important reason to me is the moral one. quite simply the existing maze of federal work force training programs is failing those who it is intended to be serving by trying to be all things to all people, the federal work force training program is serving no one well. that's a problem. the federal government's food print has gotten far too large and our national debt has grown with it. as a result of this failing to serve the work force of today and piling up ever larger bills for the children of tomorrow. people that don't even exist yet. what the skills act does is consolidate and eliminate many unnecessary and duplicative programs not simply for the sake of downsizing but improve the quality of work force training. that's what we should all be about. republican and democrat alike. business owners understand this. they understand the importance of streamlining and efishency. they understand t
